This was the second attempt to bring the big robot back for contemporary audiences. It was also the one that, for better or worse, began the trend of "teenagers with attitude" in the pilot's seat (not counting Pidge, who was always a kid). It focuses heavily on these younger pilots (Vince, Daniel, and Larmina), to the point where franchise regulars like Lotor are more in the background. I could see why this would bother older fans, but I personally like the new pilots, and the lore they brought to the series.
Please keep in mind that I have not finished this series (and wow, does that haunt me), but I'll try to be as comprehensive as possible.
